and the signature distortion that results. It's just not a very artful NR program, and there are more sophisticated ones on the market. You can iron out broadly-defined "noise" to the point that what's left sounds like a tin-can-and-string phone under water. It's called phaseshifting, and can be the result of the crude sonic pixilizing of a signal source, and the rough-hewn removal of identified noise objects--the program tries to fill the holes created, and does so badly. There's a young British enthusiast and engineer, Jonathan Holmes, who posts regularly on your dreaded YouTube and uses top-flight equipment (bought on a severe student's budget) and has achieved results superior enough to be noticed by BBC producers. Sadly, Goldwave is like operating with a hacksaw. There's much more to surface noise profiles than "grinding noises." Each label had a unique S/N ratio which evolved over time, and a unique EQ balance that can be--artfully--restored. Goldwave is a bit like amputating your toes to fit into a smaller shoe--the music, like your feet, always suffers. Holmes' tutorial on restoration is well worth viewing. He's also humble enough to accept criticism without an ego getting in the way.

Subject: "Face the Music" misnamed
The song listed as "Face the Music" is actually "Change Partners," which was written for the film, "Carefree."

NOBODY else seems to be cleaning record noises and posting them here for you. Remove my 35,000 uploads and you have near NOTHING. When are you or your cronies going to get started? When a record is played on an acoustic player the fidelity is destroyed. The grinding noise is magnified replacing the high frequency.

Subject: Good Old Ray
'Double Trouble' was recorded by the first Ray Noble American band which included Glenn Miller, Charlie Spivak, Bud Freeman and others. The sound is very good. Kazım Ergin

Subject: Restorations
When you attempt to restore these audio files you are tossing out all of the high frequency response. That is NOT the proper way to restore a recording, most 78rpm records from the 30's and 40s had a frequency response of up to 10- 11 KHZ and by tossing out what you call the "grinding noise" you are tosing out the Hi frequencies too like an "S" sound. Cool edit pro (adobie audition) and Dart can both help restore these recordings without destroying the high end. if you over process it you get almost like a squeek on the high end. Sometimes it is more preferable to listen to some slight hiss then toss it out. You do get an "A" for effort here.Goldwave isnt the greatest tool for this kind of thing. it Sounds "OK" but could be better. You may also wish to put up unrestored copies in a losless format so someone with better equipment and software can have a go at a cleaner restoration.
It is always nice to see someone try a restoration . Good luck !
